"To get the position of your dreams, can you really win without competing? You bet you can. Applying Dr. Arlene Barro's Right Fit Method to your work setting, your career, and even to your personal life is not only possible, it's the only way to ensure success. Dr. Barro's expert advice, combined with her entertaining storytelling, makes WIN WITHOUT COMPETING! a 'must read' for everyone who yearns for a deeply satisfying and meaningful professional and personal life. Whether you're an employee, employer, or an entrepreneur, you'll be fascinated by this 'page tumer' full of real-life stories demonstrating that the good guys can indeed finish first." --Patti Rager, Former Chairman, Nursing Spectrum, a division of Gannett Company, Inc.

"I never concern myself with which position is 'best' for a candidate, or which candidate is 'best' for a particular employer," says top search consultant and career coach, Dr. Arlene Barro in her new book, WIN WITHOUT COMPETING! Career Success the Right Fit Way.

Dr. Barro, who has successfully matched candidates and employers for more than ten years, discloses to readers her Right Fit Method in this life-defining career guide, showing new graduates, back-to-work job seekers, and anyone who wants to move up--how to become their own career-strategy expert, to discover for which position they are exactly suited, and to set a personal standard against which no other candidate can compete to capture that particular position.

"My mission for WIN WITHOUT COMPETING! was to write much more than a 'how to' find the right position (or candidate). My goal is to teach job-seekers how to set a standard against which no one else can compete," says Dr. Barro. "My sole professional concern has always been finding an exquisite fit between candidate and employer--like the interlocking pieces of a puzzle. Now my book teaches job-seekers and HR professionals how to use my Right Fit Method to do this for themselves."

In an engaging, compassionate, and no-nonsense style, Dr. Barro gives her readers insights into the hiring strategies of employers and shares true-life, stories of candidates she has fit perfectly into their ideal positions. She also debunks outmoded career-search notions: "For example, job-seekers do not have to send their resumes to thousands of HR departments," she says. Instead, she describes how to "shape, sell, and share your 'personal brand'--the compelling professional identity you present--only to the employer you know is right for you."

Dr. Barro shows the readers how to "win without competing" by expressing the totality of who they are and what they have to offer the right, fortunate, employer.

Dr. Barro's Right Fit Method is also designed to save human resource professionals and employers time and money by not hiring "wrong fits,"--eliminating the need to fire and rehire. WIN WITHOUT COMPETING! describes how to interview only candidates who match their specifications and will be a long-term "right fit."

WIN WITHOUT COMPETING! is a win-win investment for both employers and candidates, says Dr. Barro. And one of the best investments either of them can make.
